In December 2014, I wrote a review on the dry shampoo Blowpro Faux Dry Shampoo, and even though I have already reviewed it, I think 1. that it is worth rewriting and 2. that I have some updated opinions about the one that I am happy to share with me off.
When I tested it several years ago, I liked it a lot but still did not get completely fixed, since then it has been in my product collection and collected dust.
Now, however, I have started using it again! Actually only because I did not want spray bottles with me when I went abroad as spray bottles have a tendency to leak from the pressure in airplanes. Then this was perfect I thought and since then I have continued to use it as I suddenly think it is so heavenly smart :)
If any of you have tested it (or similar packaging), it would be great to hear your opinions about the packaging and this type of dry shampoo that is not a classic spray!
What is Blowpro Faux Dry Shampoo?
Most dry shampoos on the market today are in spray form, you can say that this is a mixture between spray and "Dust It powder" that you dab on the scalp as a spice jar type. But with this you spray by pressing in the middle of the bottle and "puffing out" powder, so the bottle does not have any kind of liquid or propellant.
It should give a freshly washed feeling and volume, and costs about 125 kronor but seems to be sold out in principle everywhere in Sweden. On nordstrom.com you can easily order to Sweden, however a little more expensive there, but according to Blowpro's website, it does not seem to have been removed from the range or anything like that so it will probably be in stock again and then it is available at HERE. On Blowpro's website you will also see one Film on how it is used! However, I use much more and much faster than her in the movie haha :)
Here is my review!
♥ I like the principle with the bottle, that you do not have to pay for any kind of liquid or gas, but get what you pay for - that is, the powder. In addition, many spray bottles can have more gas than powder (or how it now works in there) so you think you have dry shampoo left but there will only be spray and no powder. But with this bottle, you know exactly when it is about to run out and not.
♥ I also like that it is fragrance-free, everything today has added fragrances that you mix anyway, so it is nice to have at least one product that does not smell. In addition, many dry shampoos have a tendency to have a strong scent that many do not like, but you can avoid this! It is nice to have a fresh scent in the hair when you have not washed it for a while - but you can have a mild mist or similar instead.
♥ It gives a freshly washed feeling (and appearance of course) that is not felt at all in the hair, perfect for you who do not like the harsh feeling that many dry shampoos give!
♥ I also think that the hair stays matte longer than with dry shampoo with regular spray. I think it's because you get more powder at once with this than when you use spray. More powder = matte longer. You can also puff out very little powder as well, you do not have to use as much as I do :)
♥ It is quick to get very, very oily hair to become completely matte, without having to stand and spray the world's largest gas cloud for an eternity as with a regular spray.
♥ It lasts super long! I have always wanted to buy type XXXL size on my dry shampoo bottles because they run out all the time when you have as oily hair as I have. I always feel I have to be stingy. But this has lasted for any length of time.
x For me, it took a while to get the cuts in with the bottle. At first I thought it was difficult to distribute evenly throughout the hair and that you do not really know where to "spray". And then you have to shake the bottle after almost every puff for powder to come. And then I had trouble not getting powder on my clothes because powder came out when I shook. But now I think the packaging is really good! The only thing that is still a small minus is that you have to shake it often but otherwise it works just fine.
x My hair did not get as much volume as I had hoped for, that detail can be a plus for many who do not want a lot of volume, but for me it will be a minus as it says volume-giving in the product description. If you compare with how flat the hair is when it is frizzy, it obviously gives volume as it suddenly becomes airy, but I would not say that it gives the same volume as other volumizing dry shampoos.
x It is positive that there is a lot of powder at once (as I wrote in the good points above) but it also results in that after a few days you have a lot of powder in the hair and it is very irritating to my scalp. Do not know if there is any powder you can have such a large amount of on the scalp without it irritating (?) Because it can depend on the amount and not the ingredients, I think. But it's a small problem anyway. I have very sensitive scalp for dry shampoo should be added, there are few (but not many) that I can use without itching after 2-3 days.
What I like about the cork is that you close it by turning, perfect for me who always neglects all corks!
I wonder if the person who made the pictures for the description on the bottle and the person who wrote the text did not really talk to each other haha. Because I think that picture 1 means that you should shake the bottle, because you have to, but it only says that you should keep the bottle upright, which is so logical that you would not have to write it;)
Summary - I recommend this dry shampoo for you who want an airy and freshly washed feeling with a little volume (but not much) and who think it is nice to avoid spray clouds and strong scents. Especially if you have very oily hair that I have and need to use a lot of dry shampoo for great effect. It gets a 4/5 rating when I would say that the packaging could have been snapped even better so that you do not have to "get the cuts" but think it is good at once.
A package like this with the same principle but a slightly better bottle + and a formula that is milder against my itchy scalp - then it would have had a full pot!
Would be fun to hear more opinions about this, if you tested it or read others who reviewed it. Hugs are ♥
Have not tested it, but I use Kisby's dry shampoo in powder form and which works more like a salt shaker (with snap cap). Shakes out the hand and then makes into the hair. Gives a matte feeling (which I want) and is damn smooth when traveling. My hair is super thin so I do not need to use so much product, the disadvantage is that it can settle a little in the bottom if you are careless, some grains are a little bigger as well.
Interesting! Thanks for commenting :)
